USS Pioneer – April 2020


Sim Updates

The site update has gone through and although there are a few minor glitches it looks great. It really incorporates the Star Trek Picard aesthetic in look and feel. We have Picard uniform avatars and ranks on our manifest. The crew and myself are exceptionally happy with the way it turned out. Stop by the site and have a look, I would love to hear your thoughts.

Our cross sim mission had drawn to a close and the fleet emerged victorious as Empok Nor is retaken. This came at a great cost to both sides. Gul Typhon Prenar the head of the Obsidian Order and Hadir Prenar's father has been killed by his son no less. Ensign Dana Wakefield, an Operations Officer aboard the Pioneer gave the ultimate sacrifice and died saving her ship and crew in the midst of combat.

The current mission is called New Home Same Pioneers and is a story that will show what happens as a ship simply cruises. More on that later in the report. The Pioneer currently has one application pending and under review.

Crew Updates

Crew Changes
With the new mission two crew members have decided to change characters. First Ensign Dana Wakefield of the Operations Department has passed away during the last mission. Her writer has replaced her with Ensign Eleanor Raine the Pioneer's new Diplomatic Advisor.

Lieutenant Ingrid Hollister the Chief Flight Control Officer has resigned their commission with Starfleet. Her whereabouts are unknown. Her writer has replaced her with Lieutenant Junior Grade Nazia Tam the new Chief Flight Control Officer.

Departing Crew Members
Thankfully our community stays strong on the Pioneer. No one has left the sim. The Pioneer community is a relatively solid one.

Leave of Absence
We are happy to announce that our Chief Science Officer Vaebn tr'Hwersuil has returned to us, as well as the Assistant Chief Medical Officer Hermia O'Rourke. However, our Counselor Tallida Ovaa still remains on Leave of Absence as her real life calls. Lord knows we can use her and we hope she returns soon.

New Crew Members
The past month was a busy one on the Pioneer a lot of new things. A new site, new mission, and not one but two new crew members. First we would like to welcome Lieutenant Junior Grade Alexander Foulkes to our Science Department as the Astrometrics Officer. He is no Seven of Nine but he is going be a great addition. Welcome aboard...

In our Marine division we welcome Sergeant Teevil Eubilex as the Team Leader of Rifle Fire Team 2. He is also a skilled Combat Engineer. I guess that comes with being an Edosian with three arms. We are overjoyed to him and Alexander aboard and cannot wait to see what they have in store for us.

Story Elements

As the dust settles on the battle and Empok Nor rebuilds Captain Malbrooke has a conversation with Admiral Lancaster. The latter issues an order for the Pioneer to make for Starbase Sirius in all due haste. While traveling to the station the crew came to terms Dana's death. A new chapter in the Pioneer begins with families. To kick that off the Pioneer has a wedding as the Chief Intelligence Officer Jennifer Masters marries Billy Calhoun.

When the Pioneer arrives at Starbase Sirius the crew is granted leave to settle in and explore the station as the ship is outfitted with a Quantum Slipstream Drive. The Pioneers aboard the USS Pioneer have a new home, and new friends.

New enemies rise from an old source, The Romulans...

Other Information

I am overjoyed at the drive in posting and reinvestment into the Pioneer and it's story. I am indeed lucky to have this crew and this community.

I would like to add for anyone who may read this, a simple Thank You. As an essential employee who works in Emergency Services I know that I have appreciated the distraction this community can offer. So thank you for taking my mind off of a lot of the sorrow and pain that I have been seeing these past few weeks.
